Psychiatry Is a Secular Religion

Psychiatry is the secular religion of secular nations. Qualified adherents are allowed to engage in forced conversion using civil commitment and psychiatric coercion, force, and confinement. Psychiatric coercion is morally wrong and should be outlawed. Only consensual psychiatry should be legal. I support the separation of psychiatry and state.

Discussing Suicide

Once suicide is respected as a civil and human right for adults, then perhaps less people will use it as “a cry for help”; maybe people can then talk openly about suicide in private and fully be able to ask for help without being concerned about potentially being locked up in a psychiatric unit.

Copyrights

Is meta data copyrighted? Could minimum royalty laws exist?

Google advertises on pages of aggregated link titles and website descriptions. Google automates the collection of website page titles and site descriptions. Human people manually create this content through effort and intellectual labor. Is Google effectively earning money from copyrighted content?

Facebook earns money from massive amounts of content created by more than two billion people. Should Facebook be compelled to distribute 70% of net profit earned from advertising back to content creators/contributors?

Amazon willingly/voluntarily distributes to creators about 70% of profits from electronic books they sell on Amazon.

Thomas Szasz and Psychiatric Slavery

People that support what psychiatrist Thomas Szasz calls psychiatric slavery should not be around vulnerable people. If you support what Szasz calls psychiatric slavery then you are morally deficient and either malicious or willingly ignorant or oblivious. You will be on the wrong side of history. Adults should be able to have open and honest conversations about suicide in private without being concerned about potentially being locked in a psychiatric unit and effectively jailed. We should use copious amounts of persuasion, reason, and kindness to reduce suicides. It will be good if we can reduce suicides to zero. We should discourage suicide, however suicide should be respected as a civil and human right for adults when it is not done in public.

Birth Control and Death Control

Birth control is influencing when one creates life. Death control is influencing when one’s own life ends. As far as I know, it was psychiatrist Thomas Szasz who invented the two word term death control. According to psychiatrist Thomas Szasz suicide should be respected as a civil and human right for adults. Read the books Suicide Prohibition and Fatal Freedom. Both books are by Thomas Szasz. Suicide is effectively illegal since people can be effectively jailed in psychiatric units for attempting suicide or indicating that they will try to engage in it. Psychiatric slavery is what is happening when people earn money from psychiatric coercion, force, and confinement. Death control should be legal, just like birth control is legal. It will be good if we can reduce suicides to zero. We should only use persuasion, reason, and kindness to reduce suicides among adults. According to psychiatrist Thomas Szasz psychiatric coercion is medicalized terrorism. There is a movement of psychiatric survivors who feel they have been harmed by psychiatry. Of course, those that have successfully engaged in suicide are not here on Earth to voice an opinion that death control should be legal like birth control is legal. How much longer will psychiatric slavery remain legal? Help to outlaw psychiatric slavery. Help to legalize death control so that it is just as legal as birth control. Read books that psychiatrist Thomas Szasz wrote.

Rethinking Psychiatry?

Once psychiatry is fully rethought, one should recognize that psychiatric slavery should be outlawed. According to psychiatrist Thomas Szasz, civil commitment and the insanity defense form the foundation of psychiatric slavery. Thomas Szasz wrote a book entitled Psychiatric Slavery. Psychiatric slavery happens when individuals earn money from psychiatric coercion, force, and confinement. Suicide should be respected as a civil and human right for adults. Read the book Suicide Prohibition by psychiatrist Thomas Szasz.

Outlaw Psychiatric Slavery

Psychiatric slavery should be banned outlawed. Psychiatrist Thomas Szasz believed that civil commitment and the insanity defense form the foundation of psychiatric slavery. Civil commitment and the insanity defense should therefore be banned and made illegal. Psychiatric slavery is when people earn money from psychiatric coercion, force, and confinement. Suicide is effectively illegal since people can be effectively jailed for trying to engage in it, or indicating that they will engage in it. Suicide should be respected as a civil and human right for adults. We should use persuasion, reason, and kindness to reduce suicides. We should not use psychiatric coercion, force, and confinement to reduce suicides. It will be good if we can reduce suicides to zero. Death control should legal. Utilizing birth control is to affect when one creates life. Utilizing or not utilizing death control relates to how one ends one’s own life. Read the book Suicide Prohibition: The Shame of Medicine by psychiatrist Thomas Szasz. Read his book Psychiatric Slavery, which analyzes a Supreme Court case related to civil commitment.

Basic Income

I just called a Senator and requested that he attempt to implement a basic income at a Federal level. I informed him some about the issue in the voice message I left, and mentioned where he could learn more about basic income.

I left a voicemail. I was on Facebook for mobile. I liked a post by one of my senators and a link to call them was then presented below their post in the app. I clicked it and then my phone dialed the number so I could leave a voicemail. It was easy.

Please consider telling your elected Congress persons to implement a basic income. Call them. Email them. Tweet to them. Talk to them if possible.

Do Psychiatric Drugs Cause Violence?

Do psychiatric drugs cause violence? Psychiatric drugs don’t cause violence anymore than demon possession causes violence. Drugs might help to amplify negative emotions in some people. However, to utilize illegal violence is ultimately a decision that a human makes. They are not possessed by a drug. Suicide should be respected as a civil and human right for adults and only consensual psychiatry should be legal. Read books that psychiatrist Thomas Szasz wrote. Thomas Szasz believed that there are no causes of crimes; there are only reasons for crimes. Read his books Insanity, Suicide Prohibition, Psychiatric Slavery, Our Right to Drugs, and Psychiatry.
